An Fraughan: Three Neighbouring Schools Exhibition Creates Buzz for Carlow’s Little Drummin Bog

At the opening of the An Fraughan 3-schools art exhibition on Thursday 6 June 2019 – a lovely sunny day, 128 children, parents, siblings,  just about managed to fit into the small local Drummin Hall. Drummin Bog, Carlow’s only raised bog (and the last remaining in the South East of Ireland) was truly celebrated from the creative efforts of children who live in the Drummin area of County Carlow, Ireland!

‘An Fraughan’: Drummin Bog School Project begins

The Drummin Bog Project committee are delighted to announce news of The “An Fraughan”* (bilberry) project – a new collaboration between the children of the schools of St. Brendan’s, Drummond, Scoil Moling, Glynn and St. Michael’s, Newtown; with South Carlow artists Jules Michael, Annabel Konig and Cathy Fitzgerald.

Based on the Drummin Bog, the An Fraughan project is an eco-social-arts practice, because it connects a very special Carlow environment with its local community through inclusive, participatory arts activities.
